I have a pipe of commands ....

cd $tempdir/websync
echo $scanhtml | csplit -f index -q - /lock/ {*}

This seems a bit of a bodge and I am sure there is a better way..


PS I used echo $scanhtml | because to use this directly in csplit seletes the file if a split is done !

Please excuse my extreme stupidity ... double quoted it !!
